!! Tropes (YMMV tropes can be found [[YMMV/TheSimpsonsS13E13TheOldManAndTheKey here]]):
* ArmorPiercingSlap: Abe gives Zelda one after meeting up with her again in Branson.
* BaitAndSwitch: One would expect that Abe would drive all the way to Branson to get back Zelda's love. When the finally reunite, Abe tells Zelda that he hates her, and calls her a "hoochie".

* CallBack: Bart had previously visited Branson as part of his, Milhouse's, Martin's, and Nelson's road trip to the Knoxville World's Fair in Season 7's "[[Recap/TheSimpsonsS7E20BartOnTheRoad Bart on the Road]]."
* GoldDigger: Zelda
* HumiliationConga: Abe publicly calls out on Zelda for only liking him for his license, and dumping him when Homer bans him from driving. He even gets the crowd to chant "Hoochie, Hoochie" to further twist the knife.

* JustTheIntroductionToTheOpposites: Abe acts like a wild teenager while Homer acts as the stern father.
